White Wine Type Of Wine


White wine can be made from red as well as white grapes, since grape juice is almost colorless after its extraction. However, mainly white grapes are used to prepare most white wines, still.

To impact the color of a wine, the skin of the wine grape plays a major role. By letting the skin soak along with the juice, the color of a wine is influenced. Since this is the fact, it is possible to make white wine even from red grapes by extracting the juice carefully and keeping the skin aside.

One of the most famous white colored wines is champagne: Made from red grapes (Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) as well as white grapes (Chardonnay), it becomes a sparkling wine as it is fermented in its bottle.

The decision whether the skin and sometimes also stems are allowed to soak with the grape juice determines the amount of tannin, too. Tannins are reduced in the wine if the skin and stem are not allowed to soak in the juice. This is an important aspect for making wine as the mouth drying quality of tannin makes you feel the firmness of a wine in your mouth.

Sometimes white wines are fermented or aged in oak barrels to impart some tannin to the wine, but not as much tannin as in red wines.

The wine flavor of white wines may range from very dry to sweet and golden.
